The good: Guesthouse is located in an apartment building bang opposite the Umananda Ghat in the best part of town with convenient access to Umananda Temple (you can jump into the boat from your balcony), Kamakya temple (15 min), shopping, food, and airport. The rooms are big and clean and although the trees cover most of the view, you can sit on the tiny balcony and see the Brahmaputra. The staff is excellent - the room boys were very friendly and accessible at a moment's notice. Mr. Vijay the owner was also great, taking a genuine effort to know the guests and ensure their comfort. He also gave great recommendations for things to do. I definitely felt very safe and comfortable.
The not-so-good: The rooms are very old fashioned and there were many stubborn mosquitoes that did not respond to the Goodknight Advanced the property provided. Definitely bring your own coil or fast card if you are staying here. Same goes for towels. Also, while I felt completely safe with both the staff and the locality, single female guests should note that there are more doors between you and the outside world than there would be in a hotel and fewer people.
The conclusion: highly recommended!More
